Amazon Fire TV review

 

Compact and portable ; Powerful ; Affordable ; Works with Alexa ; Supports HDR

Dongle may strain HDMI ports ; No Ethernet jack ; No Dolby Vision

Amazon’s new $70 Fire TV dongle is powerful, easy to install, and adds support for HDR content. With Alexa at the helm, Amazon’s Fire TV is a more compelling streaming option than ever before.

Amazon Fire TV (2017)

 

The Amazon Fire TV adds HDR10 to its already compelling 4K video support and Alexa voice assistant, making it one of the best media streamers you can buy.

Supports 4K and HDR10. Works with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. Fast performance with solid Wi-Fi streaming. Ethernet connectivity is an option.

No support for Dolby Vision. Missing a few notable streaming services.

Bottom Line: The Amazon Fire TV adds HDR10 to its already compelling 4K video support and Alexa voice assistant, making it one of the best media streamers you can buy.

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2017) review

 

The latest Fire TV 4K will be pointless for some but a bargain for others...

Alexa integration ; Good 4K and HDR library ; Dolby Atmos hardware support ; Seamless operation

No access to Atmos content ; No Dolby Vision ; Amazon-heavy interface won’t have universal appeal

Alexa and affordability make a strong case for Amazon’s flagship streamer

Amazon Fire TV: Affordable Alexa-infused 4K streaming

 

If you like asking Alexa for TV shows and getting results, and you happen to have a TV with 4K and high dynamic range, the new Fire TV has your name on it.

The Amazon Fire TV serves up 4K and HDR video in a compact package for an affordable price. Its voice features are best-in-class, and Echo and Dot owners can control it hands-free with "Alexa" commands. App and game selection is superb, responses are...

The user interface pushes Amazon content too aggressively and doesn't allow customization. Fewer 4K HDR apps than Roku, and finding 4K content is more difficult.

Although Roku's 4K stick is slightly better overall, the Fire TV wins with Alexa devotees who own 4K HDR TVs.

Amazon Fire TV (2017) review

 

Amazon teams Alexa integration with 4K HDR to rival your smart TV

Great, easy-to-accomodate design ; Well-designed interface ; Fast performance ; Sharp, bright 4K HDR images

Overlaps with smart TV functionality ; Heavy Amazon focus ; Ethernet connection costs extra

Better than its predecessor in every way, Amazon's new Fire TV is a great way to enjoy 4K HDR content with the added sparkle of Alexa integration

Amazon Fire TV (2017) review: Alexa serves at the 4K HDR party

 

What the Fire TV offers is a way to plug a potential hole in your living room setup and it does so in a fun way that's easier to understand than

Compact ; Easy to use ; Great user interface ; Alexa aids searching and connectivity

Ethernet connection costs extra ; No Dolby Vision support (if that matters) ; Adds little to existing smart TVs ; No Dolby Atmos content

We can't fault Fire TV's redesign. Moving to be a more compact package is always good news, although the need to buy that Ethernet accessory sets it at a minor disadvantage to Chromecast Ultra. However, the addition of the Alexa remote, a stable and...

Amazon Fire TV (2017) review

 

A tiny 4K and HDR streaming box

Great design ; HDR support ; Future proof with Dolby Atmos ; Good price

Lack of Dolby Atmos content ; Volume control missing from remote ; Not as much 4K content as Apple TV

The Amazon Fire TV (2017) is the latest version of Amazon’s streaming box, and comes with a fantastic new redesign, plus support for 4K HDR content and Dolby Atmos soundtracks.

Amazon Fire TV (2017) Review: 4K HDR, Alexa, and a problem

 

Welcome to the age of 4K HDR and a brand new Amazon Fire TV (2017), complete with Alexa to hold your hand as you wade into High Dynamic Range content. Aggressively priced at $69.99, and thoroughly undercutting the latest Apple TV in the process, Amazon...

Easy to install and discreet ; Alexa support is legitimately useful ; Half the price of the new Apple TV

HDR10 not Dolby Vision ; Limited 4K HDR content available ; Remote lacks basic TV controls

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2017) Review: Big smarts, tiny box

 

Amazon's latest Fire TV box can stream video at an impressive 4K Ultra HD resolution, at up to 60 frames-per-second, while also supporting HDR visuals.

4K HDR support ; Simple interface ; Alexa integration

Limited connectivity

For just £70 here in the UK, the new Fire TV with 4K HDR support offers stunning value for money. You can stream great-looking video from the usual services such as Netflix as well as Amazon’s own Prime Video, while full Alexa support gives it an edge...
